LONG BEACH, Calif., April 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® recliners, and other wellness solutions, has been honored with five 2017 Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX). Conducted each year by the Design Journal, the annual competition draws approximately 2,852 entries from 500 companies and recognizes superior product design of furnishings marketed and sold throughout the international architecture and design industry. This is the seventh year that Human Touch products have been recognized by the ADEX committee.

“The ADEX Awards are the largest awards program in the design industry,” said John Platter, ADEX Executive Director. “Human Touch continues to impress our awards committee year after year with its product innovation and design.”

Human Touch’s ADEX-winning wellness solutions include:

  • The Human Touch Novo XT massage chair received a Platinum ADEX Award for its distinctive unibody design, which follows a unique L-track that massages the entire back, from the top of the shoulders all the way down to the glutes. The space-saving wellness solution requires only 2” of wall clearance, and pivots seamlessly from the upright to the reclined position. The Novo XT also features full-body stretch, Bluetooth speakers, lumbar heat, cloud touch acupressure, zero-gravity massage and an extending foot-and-calf massager. With 34 auto wellness programs and an easy-to-use LCD controller, the Novo XT massage chair is endorsed by the World Federation of Chiropractic as an optimal way to improve spinal health and relieve overall stress. Novo XT upholstery options include Black, Red, Gray, Cream, or Brown SofHyde. 

  • The Human Touch ZeroG® Volito massage chair also won a Platinum ADEX award for its stunning open frame design, which is both elegant and functional. Volito is the Latin word for “hover,” which describes the weightless sensation you feel as you float in the physician-recommended, neutral posture position. The Volito also features 3 auto-massage programs, FlexGlide® massage technology, a retractable ottoman with a foot and calf massager, independent leg and back adjustability with dual-motor power, and 3 targeted massage techniques. The ZeroG Volito is available in Caramel SofHyde upholstery. 

  • The Human Touch iJoy® Active 2.0 massage chair won a Platinum ADEX award for its stylish, compact design. This wellness solution uses FlexGlide orbital massage to replicate the techniques used by massage professionals to relax and recharge your body. It offers three intelligently designed, invigorating auto-massage programs, as well as three massage technique options. An accessible strap provides easy recline, and the tethered remote control ensures that your perfect massage is close at hand. The iJoy Active 2.0 features a compact, sleek design and is available in Espresso or Bone SofHyde upholstery.  

  • The Human Touch Perfect Chair® PC-610 Omni-Motion Classic zero-gravity recliner received a Gold ADEX Award for its stylish design using hand-carved wood and luxuriously crafted leather upholstery. The dual-motor mechanism allows for infinite comfort positions, and this chair also features extended armrests, an elongated head pillow, and ergonomic lumbar support. Every Perfect Chair provides a unique balance of support and seating comfort by placing the body in a zero-gravity, virtually weightless position that physicians recommend as the healthiest way to sit. The PC-610 is a versatile and configurable wellness solution, with 11 upholstery options and 3 wood frame choices in order to build the perfect, Perfect Chair. 

  • The Human Touch ZeroG® 5.0 massage chair took home a Gold ADEX Award for its modern design, which is perfect for any luxury living space. This chair provides a full-body massage with a Smart 3D FlexGlide massage engine, which simulates the expert techniques of massage professionals, as well as zero-gravity seating, multiple auto-massage programs, a BodyMap PRO® remote, a foot-and-calf massager, lumbar heat, extra-wide comfort seating, and more. The ZeroG 5.0 is available in Black, Espresso, or Bone SofHyde upholstery.

“Our priority is to create products that not only provide benefits to our customers’ health, but also serve as a captivating piece of furniture to accentuate their homes and businesses,” said David Wood, CEO of Human Touch. “Our continued success in the ADEX awards stands as a testament of this dedication to design.
